    GAME OVERVIEW
    The Stampeders conclude the regular season with a visit to Vancouver’s BC Place on Friday to face the Lions.

    The Stamps (14-3) have clinched first place in the West Division and a bye to the West final, which will be played at McMahon Stadium on Nov. 17. Calgary has a chance to match a franchise record for wins in a season — the Stamps won 15 games in 1993, 1994 and 1995.

    The Stamps have won five straight games, the team’s longest winning streak since a six-game run in 2010. BC (10-7) is locked into third place in the West and will travel to Regina to face the Saskatchewan Roughriders on Nov. 10 for the West Division semifinal.

    Both teams are coming off Week 18 victories — the Stamps knocked off the Roughriders 29-25 at McMahon Stadium while the Lions posted a 43-29 home-field win over the Edmonton Eskimos.

    This is the fourth meeting of the season between Calgary and BC, with the Stamps winning two of the first three encounters. The home team has won every game so far as the Stamps won 44-32 on June 28 and 40-26 on Oct. 11 at McMahon while the Lions prevailed 26-22 on Aug. 17 at BC Place.

    Go Stampeders! :D

    Well, for as long as necessary, anyway. ;)

    It's an opportunity to see what some of the second tier players can do, as well as to provide a couple of guys (Cornish and Hughes) with club records as rewards for their season's play.

    What it is not, is a "must win" game for Calgary, so there is no need to risk starters at any position for any longer than necessary.

    Let's hope the team in Red & White comes out of this healthy, and ready to play for when it does count on November 17th...;)

    This game has turned into the Injury Bowl for the Stampeders.

    On the other side Travis Lulay looks like his rehab is nearly complete.

    And it's done. 26-7 Lions. Really if the stamps were to lose now was the best time to do it.

    Watching the game last night it sure looked like many of those BC defenders were out to injure players last night. Rolling up on the legs and grabing ankles after the tackles it looked pretty dam obvious. These guys were playing Wally ball.
